Abstract:

Clara is a factory worker whose life has become exceedingly grim. She, her two children, and her husband are living with his family, while he is laid up (and off from his job) with a broken leg. Her brother-in-law is a lay-about; her peevish mother-in-law worships her sons and exploits Clara, the only working adult in the household. One day she passes out on the factory floor, and the National Health Service diagnosis of tuberculosis is justification for sending her to a sanatorium in the mountains. There she meets a young man, and falls desperately in love. If, as Appollinaire said, "Sickness is the vacation of the poor," what will happen when Clara is well?
